Serenus, the Gardener, also known as Cerneuf, according to his probably fictious legend, was born in Greece. He imigrated to Sirmium (Metrovica, Yugoslavia), and was known for his gardening. He went into hiding for a time to escape a persecution of Christians that had just begun, and on his return, rebuked a lady for walking in his garden at an unseemly time. She reported to her husband that he had insulted her, and the husband, a member of the imperial guards, reported the matter to Emperor Maximian. Upon orders from the Emperor the governor investigated the matter, found Serenus innocent of insulting the woman, but while examining him, found that he was a Christian. When Serenus refused to sacrifice to pagan gods, he was beheaded. His feast day is February 23rd.
