Fiaba indovinello: read the book with parallel translation into English

Tre donne erano state trasformate in fiori in mezzo al campo, tuttavia una di loro poteva passare la notte a casa sua. Una volta, sul fare del giorno, quando doveva tornare dalle sue compagne nel campo per tramutarsi in fiore, ella disse al marito: "Se stamattina vieni a cogliermi, sarò libera e rimarrò sempre con te." E così avvenne. Domanda: come ha potuto riconoscerla il marito, se i fiori erano tutti uguali e senza differenze?
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. Now the question is, how did her husband know her, for the flowers were exactly alike, and without any difference?
Risposta: "Poiché‚ aveva trascorso la notte in casa sua, e non nel campo, la rugiada non l'aveva bagnata come le altre due. Così il marito la riconobbe."
Answer: "As she was at her home during the night and not in the field, no dew fell on her as it did on the others, and by this her husband knew her."
