The Gardens in April 


Though April showers
May come your way,
They bring the flowers
That bloom in May;
And if it's raining,
Have no regrets;
Because, it isn't raining rain, you know,
It's raining violets.

Though it was way back in 1921 that this song was first popularised by
the great Al Jolson the sentiment it expresses is surely timeless.
