The riddle may be solved in a 6×6 matrix, where each row and each column must have the entire numeric sequence 1 to 6 ( a small “sudoku”). The numbers in the matrix are the “flower” that the column label number -a single lady- give to each rows label element. If a lady can’t send nor receive the flowers that have her

name (e.g, miss Daisy can’t have daisies), it could be meant that she would “send herself the flowers”. Thus the main diagonal elements have the same values their

respective column and row labels d o. If we represent the matrix with a colour for each number we obtain the color matrix.

Every coloured rectangle represents a lady. On the map we recognize the colour of the color matrix and the relationship that occurs. Each rectangle is divided in two half: on the left one there are the flowers she send (up-arrow symbol), on the right the flowers she get (down-arrow).

The semicircles in the representation are the “flower shifts” from one lady to another.

The numeric progression in solution set elements represents my step sequence in finding the solution of the riddle.

The three hypothesis set are the three unique possible answer to the question the riddle pose. We begin developing the hypotesis untill she is invalidate (in the numeric matrix, that occurs when in a column or in a row we find the same number. The solution set is filled only by the sequence steps of the abduction process that belong to the sole possible hypotesis.
