Весна красная, а лето страдное. Красна весна, да голодна.

Spring is beautiful, but summer is busy. The spring is beautiful and [is] hungry.

Весна цветами красна, осень снопами.
Spring is beautiful with flowers, autumn - with sheaves.

Цыплят по осени считают.

The chickens are counted by autumn. [Don't count your chickens before they are hatched.]
