: I am interested in finding country sayings in the UK.
: e.g. Red sky at night
: Shepherds Delight

: Alot of these phrases are being forgotten.
: Does anyone have any sayings that they would like to share with me?

I live in a coastal area so I know the saying as:
Red sky at night, sailor's delight.
Red sky in the morning, sailor take warning!

ESC has some wonderful sources or rural sayings that might be of help to you.
