  • The Rose Thorns are under the second window from the right on the front of the house.
  • The Dried Nettles are on the lawn, next to the left-hand small pillar.

Various things react when you mouse over them:

  • The fire in the window of the house will glow brighter then die away.
  • The shutters on the ground-floor windows at the front will rattle.
  • The second chimney from the left: bricks will fall the first time, then some tiles.
  • The third chimney from the left: birds fly out, calling loudly.
  • The middle window will break.
