1. ## Clue 3 Solve?

Ok, I have emailed ATT just before this, but I think this is a good solve.

First, use the thickness of the stems to determine which to count first;
Second, it is no the shown number of petals, but the missing petal;
Third, label Rows and Columns from 0 to 9;
Forth, a Green is missing all petals, so it is a 9;
Fifth, if 9 Petals show, it is counted as "0" missing petals,
Sixth, start on left at the "7,3" petal, read clockwise until last is the Green Petal, 5 Petal showing.
Seventh, there is ONE error, as he usually does, and I will point it out to correct my string.

Here we go.....
This is the MISSING PETAL COUNTS, READ COLUMN THEN ROW

L,R Read Order (based on Stem Thickness)
To Obtain Letters
2,6 A 2,6
8,5 T 5,8
9,7 E 7,9
5,3 S 5,3
5,0 T 0,5
9,2 I 9,2
8,1 T 8,1
7,4 F 7,4
7,2 L 7,2
8,4 T 4,8
8,8 B 8,8
8,3 E 3,8
0,4 S 4,0...BUT IF READ 0,4 = N
9,6 O 9,6
4,7 F 7,4
9,0 E 9,0
8,6 E 6,8
5,4 S 4,5
9,4 P 4,9

IT SAYS: A TEST IT FL T BE SO FEE SP
Corrected with one error: A TEST IT FL T BE NO FEE SP

FL is Fell. Also, one possible twist...in the FL it is the only ones to use 2 on the left, interestingly if you tak the F and the take one more below it in the matrix, it is an E; For the L you do the same you get another L Thus F(E)L(L).

Open for discussion.

2. ## Correction to above

The table did not turn out....
Left column of coordinates is the "actual" petal read (missing petals), then the LETTERS obtained in the MIDDLE are from the RIGHT Coordinates which is the reading of the missing petals based on the stem thickness....

3. Hi, Scott. I printed out your solution and went over it carefully. I particularly like your method of counting what's missing rather than what's there. That sounds right to me.

Your results are somewhat confusing, however. I can't understand the decoded message. Do you have some idea specifically as to what it says? Is it about Pook's tree?

Thanks,

4. Precep...yes, I think the words TEST are clear to know you solved it....It says IT FL (It being the tree) and F(e)L(l), and a genaral statment on the fact that we were debating state park fees publicaly, and this confirmed no fees in the state parks.
