From the pattern:

Kore is another name for the Greek
goddess Persephone, who spent half of
every year in Hades. When she
returned to the land of the living
each year, her mother Demeter was so
overjoyed by her return that the earth
burst forth with bounty – or what we
know as springtime. So to celebrate
Kore’s return (or perhaps to hurry it
along!) here is a shawl bursting forth
with flowers great and small, ready to
keep out the spring chill and welcome
the sun.
