Excellent.  I am about 60 miles North so it shouldn't be too much longer.

We had a great tulip poplar bloom last spring - made some awesome honey. Hope we get another, but it seems like a cyclic thing.

i've got my three hives sitting right under a stand of big poplars. no blooms yet though. the poplars have'nt done well here in the last couple years, late frost and dry weather. this year looks good though. blackberries look good to. good luck.
