You have to either give us more details, such as size and shape of leaves, number of leaves, what the "bulbs" look like as in number on each plant, size, stamen or not etc. Simply going by what you have posted it could be an orange tree? See what I mean?

The other option is to post a picture which is really the best option for the correct answer.

It might be Camsis radicans, aka Trumpet vine, aka Trumpet creeper.

Campsis radicans page

If that's what it is, don't be romanced by it's beautiful blooms. It is the worst thug of a plant aside from kudzu. It is also very hard to kill. You'll need to cut it off clost to the ground, mash up the stump a bit and apply strait concentrate of poison-ivy/brush killer or glyphosate (roundup) on it. Even then, it might grow back and take a few more chemical applications to eradicate it. Sorry, you can't avoid chemicals on this one. It took me four years to get rid of a patch with the strong stuff.
