Ted -- this is the one that didn't make it, it seems Reply went to the author instead of the list -- I should watch for that.

Something in your post, or David's comments gave me a mindset that the icon should include a rose -- I don't know if that is really appropriate / required, but nothing in #5 looks like a rose to me. #9 has some appeal to me, I like the roses, but something about it isn't quite appealing -- maybe I'd like it better if the stems were under the roses rather than on top, and maybe triplets with different notes (i.e., the roses not all in a line but staggered (or ascending or descending). > Thanks for sharing! > > Opinions by option number: > > 1.
