Esteemed Readers, this year we return to our historical background & guess riddles from a French book of 1716. Good luck! 😊 Hint: the first riddle is dedicated to a well-known & widely used field plant.
“In the field & in villages simple peasants work with me, while in the most beautiful palaces I sometimes entertain even most severe Queen. I adorn the most pious & a young coquette; I might be seen in a hair crown & I might appear on a dress fold. I’m always welcomed on tables of the most famous persons. I have no bad intention but I’m so thin that I’m able to slip into a chamber of a most discreet Lady to watch her going to sleep & even can stay on her bed”.

I am, of course, stuck between several field plants, but I’m going to guess linseed (flax) plants. They can be made into linin, which would cover the finest tables and be part of a queen’s bed.
