Cherry blossom time

It's spring and the cherry trees are in bloom in Washington, DC!   Estimate the number of blossoms on a typical blooming cherry tree.   (For the tree shown in the picture, an individual blossom is about 2 inches across.) Be sure to clearly state your assumptions and how you came to the numbers you estimated.
