The old saying, "April showers bring May flowers" is often viewed as just a catchy rhyme many of us learned as children.

However, this phrase, which has been around since the 1500s, according to, rings true for many people - no matter what their age.

According to the website, the saying "is a reminder that even the most unpleasant of things, in this case the heavy rains of April, can bring about very enjoyable things." And, hundreds of years after the saying originated, many of us still use it to remind ourselves to be patient and endure the soggy weather, because it will surely result in beautiful blooms.

While another saying, "good things come to those who wait," can also be applied to this time of year, many simply can't wait to for what they view as the true arrival of spring - when the flowers bloom.

Ordering spring flower bouquets and arrangements is a great way to endure the April showers and remind yourself that more beauty is on the horizon.

Blooms such as tulips, daffodils, irises, lilies and hyacinths make stunning displays. Experts suggest working with a professional florist to choose in-season blooms that will help lift your mood while staying within your budget requirements.
