Only when Persephone was not in the Underworld the Earth could wear her best clothes, ony then plants and flowers could grow!
Persephone, Demeter's virgin daughter, became the Queen of the Underworld after her abduction by Hades.
When Demeter realized that Persephone is disappeared she started looking everywhere for her!
