Could it be Coral Honeysuckle (Lonicera sempervirens) ?

It's a couple doors down from me in our alley.

Wish I'd seen the vine when it was in bloom. Or remembered that I had.

I am looking at so many pictures of 'vines' that I think I'll wait until spring or summer and get a picture of this one when it's blooming. Thanks for trying to help. If no one else hops in here then I'll close this out tomorrow.

I think it is Crossvine, Bignonia capreolata.

Just saw a picture of you with your Crossvine. Think you're onto something with that.

Any chance it might be Carolina Jessamine? Just got a closer look at the leaves and now I'm crossing Carolina Jessamine off my list of possibilities.

Don't know if this will make any difference, but here's another picture of the leaves.

and the plant as it turns the corner.
