The girl tried to wash the wool, but even though his fingers started to bleed, color of wool remained all black. Despair, because he could not return home to her husband, began to cry. Impressed by the girl's pain, Jesus Christ appeared in the track and gave her a red flower asking to wash the wool Thanking him., the girl put the flower in water, washed wool and found with astonishment that the wool was milled. Happy that he managed to complete this hard task, he turned his steps towards the House but was not well received; her mother-in-law, on the contrary, upon hearing this story the girl accused her that Geum Montanum (so he was, because he recognized it's not Jesus) was her lover.After that, along with Judith started his flock to the mountain, being convinced that spring had come already, otherwise where would be able to have Geum Montanum flower?
