Betty Lou,

What you need at the herb garden is a postcard of the cactus garden. This will open a new location at the map.
You can find the postcard by going to the tree at end of the main path.
Then turn right and look close at a plant there - pick up the postcard.

Have you looked in your journal for a hint as to what to do next? That might help get you moving again.

Yes, have read my journal - noted there is something in a pile of sawdust at M address that I can use - before that I was at Walther's cottage and found that address label, have file from kitchen etc. BUT can find no sawdust pile in left bedroom or black box, black box (cashbox style) is in right bedroom with bottles of chemicals in it and no spool of wire, I remember checking this first visit to this address earlier, no spool of wire. AND no pitchfork in basement or boathook either. Am stumped, image of where I am to be looking would help me. thank
Love, Betty Lou

This video walkthrough here might be useful. There are 13 parts to the walkthrough, so you might have to hunt around a bit to find the parts that you are looking for. wave

Betty Lou, if you tell us what the journal says exactly where you are right now, we will be able to help you.

"There's a room full of sawdust in the basement at Carl's old house at Mercury Street. At the right side of its door, I can find something I need.
Hope this helps and thanks Love BL

There's no way to show you with pics here (I don't think), but I assume this refers to the blue scalpel that is just next to the exit from one of the rooms in Carl's basement. I missed it myself the first time I played it actually. Just enter all rooms in the basement, and look closely as you exit them.

NOW = got label using scalpel and read letter at Cottage, back to Mercury st and looking for wire spool, planting fork and boathook - cannot seem to find them, will reread journal and be back if I don't get "trigger" thanks

If you press 'space' you can see all the hotspots. A good way to find stuff when you can't find stuff. smile
