The literal meaning of this phrase is just as it seems: the rain showers we receive in the month of April will help beautiful flowers to bloom in the month of May.
However, there is another meaning behind this phrase. Think about a difficult time you had in your life. Did that difficult time produce anything good? Usually, something good or beautiful (May flowers) will come from the difficult moments (April showers) we have in life.
If April showers bring May flowers, what do May flowers bring? Pilgrims!* It's an old joke kids like to tell!
