    Thanks Bruce, Jona and Kathi, and everyone who participated. It was so much fun; I haven't done this since I was a kid, and it was not digital at the time Lol! I don't know whether anyone remembers the ancestor of this puzzle which was a small plastic game with may be 16 or 25 pieces that you had to move around with your thumb?

    Anyway, took me about half an hour or more to solve this one. Also figured out how to save the picture once completed with the 'print screen' option as per the link provided.
    As with the research, once I've solved the puzzle, I knew it was an Ascocenda of some kind, so I did a little bit of browsing on the site by typing 'Ascocenda' in the search field.
    I found a few posts, and opened some of them, until I finally came across the right one, and it was like Eureka! Lol

    I think we definitely should have more of this.

    Gin thanks for 'lending' your orchid photo to that game , It is a superb Ascocenda, I hope that you still have it and it keeps on blooming for you.

    Thanks Gin. I know with the puzzle you have to be a bit persistent....
    I'm happy to hear that you still have that lovely orchid.
