Limber honeysuckle (Lonicera dioica)

More than three years ago, I saw this plant on one of my off-days here in Ontario.  I did not figure out what it was until just a few days ago (I initially called it a Kissing Plant because it looked like a pair of lips).

Limber honeysuckle (Lonicera dioica)

It is Lonicera dioica, commonly known as limber honeysuckle.  The leaves are opposite and simple, but the bases of uppermost pair are fused to form a saucer-like disc.  Quite interesting.
