Thank you for all your help everyone:)
Here is a recent picture of what I believe is its flower.




What are its flowers like?

Could be Cleome? The growth tips look like it, are the flowers pink or white?

Let's wait till the buds open....Hello Nadia. Do you chop wood? I seem to recognise an axe handle there against the wall.

may be a Lonicera tatarica but i 'am not sure we need to see the flowers

It is not Cleome as I said before it is CHELONE OBLIQUA.

Or it could be a var. of monarda. Chelone o. is called turtlehead and is a native here in N.A. but the buds look like beebalm. Monarda gives off a wonderful smell and is used in the flavouring of teas...most notably Earl Grey and Lady Grey.
