: 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?

If you can lay your hands on a copy of 'Flora Britannica' by Richard Mabey you will find loads of these old sayings - obviously plant related, but none the worse for that.
