silly quotes

Is it you a Lincolnshire thing 

I was all ways told if it was a bumper year for berry's it was going to be a hard winter I think not! As the trees and bushes can't forecast the weather but hay it sounds good also Cows that are lying down before rain can’t forecast the weather they’re just tired of standing up. My wife also quotes this to me every time were out and about in the car LOL

    Ash before Oak we are in for a soak. Oak before Ash we are in for a splash. To do with which leaves emerge first in Spring

    Ice in November to bear a duck,

    Nothing to follow but mud and muck.

    This saying was quoted by a contributor to this forum recently, but I can't remember who it was, so my deepest apologies, but I thought it was so good I wrote it down.

    "It's gone dark over Bill's mother's" - rain on the way.  A very old saying with origin  completely unknown although there are several (undoubtedly apocryphal) "explanations" to be found on the interweb.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
