avere molte primavere

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the expression avere molte primavere, which means to be no spring chicken (literally, it means: to have many springs). See the expression used below:

Quanti anni ha Sara?

How old is Sara?

Secondo me ne ha molti ma ne dimostra di meno, direi che ha molte primavere, deve avere almeno ottant’anni.

In my opinion, she is getting up there but doesn’t look it, I would say she is no spring chicken and has to be at least eighty years old.
