    I thought it might be a lilac...

    I wonder if it might be a flowering dogwood - something like Cornus florida, perhaps?

    Thanks but wouldn't  it have colour or have lost its leaves by now...

    Not necessarily... it's been a strange year, and some trees and shrubs around here (NW) are bare whilst others are completely green.  But someone else may come up with a better idea...   :)

    I thought it was Leycesteria Formosa.

    I'd agree with Loraine3
    Leycesteria formosa.

    Yes!  That would explain why it's still green.  It's deciduous but keeps its leaves for ages.
