There lived an elegant gentleman who used to spend his days standing in front of the cathedral. He would always wear a red carnation and flirt with the women in town to see them smile. One day he saw a beautiful woman and he paid her his nicest compliment. The woman didn't smile and the man felt awful.

From that day forward, the man never returned to the cathedral. Shortly after his disappearance, a garden of red carnations bloomed. When the woman passed by the flowers, she finally smiled.
