AC adapter connection points (Newbie inquiry)

I hope I can word this properly because I don’t know how to load a picture here.

In a parallel circuit of 20 LEDS with a single resistor on each negative leg of each LED, can I hook up the positive and negative wire of the power adapter anywhere on the circuit (with of course the negative on the negative side of the circuit and positive on the positive side? The diagram shows the negative and positive symbol of the power supply Positioned between the 10th and 11th LED.

In other words can I connect the power supply to either end of the long strings of LEDS I’ve soldered together or is it better attached in the middle. Thanks for your time!
