april showers

April showers bring May flowers.

A shower is another name for a sudden and brief fall of rain. So, “April showers” refer to the rain that falls during that month.
This idiom means that even if we are not happy with the rain that falls in April, it will bring good things like beautiful flowers in the following month. More generally, it means that bad things can be the basis for good things to happen in the future.
