Louis XIV Asks Riddles III

Esteemed Readers,

it’s time for a new curious riddle. I will give you a little hint: this is a plant known to all of you. Good luck!

‘I long for an eternal spring. My colour is the colour of hope. I desire to keep my youth. I’m regarded as a treasure. All children of mine are dressed in gold. They often spend their time with Ladies. Those Ladies kiss them & touch with their hands. And when they feel pleasant burning of my children, they become less vanish’.

    Dear Maria, I keep hoping to hear the answer to this one. I’m no good at riddles, but I wanted to say the orange tree – these were were kept in tubs at Versailles, inside during the winter and then put out into the terraced garden with the warmth of spring. All best wishes, Moira

      Dear Moira, you are the only one who was very close to its sense. This is a lemon-tree, I have posted the answer my last post together with the new 17th century riddle. 🙂 Thanks for joining this riddle competition. In fact, the riddles are very complicated. I admire the allegoric imagination of people of that times.
