Riddling Tale
From Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, Household Tales, translated by Margaret Hunt (London: George Bell, 1884)

Three women were changed into flowers which grew in the field, but one of them was allowed to be in her own home at night.

Then once when day was drawing near, and she was forced to go back to her companions in the field and become a flower again, she said to her husband: "If thou wilt come this afternoon and gather me, I shall be set free and henceforth stay with thee."

And he did so.

Question : How did her husband know her, for the flowers were exactly alike, and without any difference?
