Don't Gild the Lily!
Plants and flowers have given a lot of colloquial expressions to English. Here are some of the most common ones.
A family tree is a list of all the members of a family. To get to the top of your tree is to do very well in your job, but to bark up the wrong tree is to waste time and energy by attacking the wrong object. A branch office is the subsidiary of a company. To twig is to suddenly understand something.
If you hedge or beat about the bush, you avoid saying what you mean in a direct way.
When you can't see the wood for the trees, you can't see something overall because of all the details. To be hedged in is to be restricted in some way. To put down roots is to settle in a place and to get to the root of something is to find a cause or explanation for it. There's no rose without a thorn means that there is a drawback to every nice thing. A thorn in the flesh is a person who is a nuisance. A rosy view of things is a very optimistic view, and to gild the lily is to ornament something which is already beautiful, and therefore spoil the effect.
