Quick update. I got my entry in at the last minute. It didn't turn out perfect. But I'm happy and I feel it's my best work yet. My next scape will be on another level hopefully here is a taste until September.
Scored a 1083. Very disappointed but not surprised. I didn't ha e enough time to get the layout quite right. And I didn't get the photo perfect. Oh well. I've ripped the background stems and switched to all rotala. Practicing trimming. Next layout will be minimal iwagumi with carpeting plants. I'll post final photo in October. Thanks for following!
