I am in the S.E. corner of NC and have a ton of "Smooth Sumac" -Rhus Glabra- blooming. Anyone else been noticing this?

It was ready to bloom when i took bees to sourwood and it set there for four weeks and still had not bloomed when i removed the bees. I have never seen it set there and take that long to bloom. I think the earlier post where he said it was in the yard ,he was talking about poision sumac(what we call poision oak) not the bush like we are talking about that makes good honey. I am seeing light and dark yellow pollen coming in and the goldenrod is starting to bloom.
