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.

I find people that don't like top posting, others don't like bottom posting, so 
I took this opportunity to "middle post" ;-)

From the peanut gallery:

Of those shown, I like #1 the best (oh, I've finally learned what people mean 
when they say hashtag -- to me, that #1 is "number 1", not "hashtag 1" ;-)

In contrast to David's comments, I don't like #5 -- I like the keyboard, and 
might like #1 better if it incorporated a keyboard.

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).
