Oh Anne I'm so glad that my mess inspired you to move your mess. : ) Remember, I did not even photograph it at the real beginning! I was afraid to show it! So what you see is the "middle". ; ) Maybe that will make yours seem better? Sending you wind in your sails and enthusiasm to "Make it So!" Happy New Year to you!! I'm still loving the orchid so much!!

Well if it makes you fell better Kathy, I'm sure that the surfaces will start messing around as soon as I have my back turned and it will begin all over again. : ) But I'm keeping my eye on it to hopefully keep the mayhem down to a low simmer! Happy New Year to you too!
