You’ve heard the little rhyme “April Showers Bring May Flowers,” right? We know it means that the typically rainy month of April yields an important water source for many plants to grow and bloom in the upcoming weeks of May. This little ditty has been found as far back as the mid-1500s when English poet Thomas Tusser wrote it in A Hundred Good Points of Husbandry as such:
“Sweet April showers
Do spring May flowers.”
It has stuck around hundreds of years and likely isn’t disappearing anytime soon. The phrase may have a different meaning to you that doesn’t actually involve literal rain or flowers. To many this short and sweet expression also means that sometimes a moment of hardship, unpleasantness or annoyance can lead to a rewarding period of happiness, ease and delight.
