jewels in the compost

Today, as I ventured for the first time with my crutches in to the garden and fields to take pictures of the Autumn colours and blue sky my eye was caught by the glinting of what I thought at first was dew on very fine mushrooms by the compost heap.  Not little mushrooms or dew at all but little diamante pins stuck in to the crumbling surface of old board.  A little row of manmade sparkles guarding the decaying organic matter.  Artifice and nature.

How did they get there?  What were they?  I loved how they shone and stood curiously on high while the leaves crept up toward them.
