A section of a seed head with raindrops on it - and a few moves with PS - reminded me of a song we used to sing in assembly when I was a child - Daisies are our silver
Buttercups our gold
This is all the treasure we can have or hold.

Raindrops are our diamonds
And the morning dew
While for shining saphires we've the speedwell blue.

Can't imagine youngsters singing that these days, but I do agree that raindrops sparkle like diamonds

Have a good week
Helen

They certainly do - I think its line dancing. Do you think the one in the centre is calling out the moves?

Thanks for your comments everyone. Ann I can see this as a patchwork quilt too - plus diamonds rather than water - wouldn't want to wet the bed!!!!

Five crystal spiders with faces, not seed heads at all, or they could even be five diamond brooches.
