  1. Isn't it funny how snowfall silences everything Gwilym - even the birds.

  3. Thanks Gordon. Snow is a kind of censorship. Information is hidden. Things fall silent. Beautiful though.

  5. Hi Gerald, in my experience in the Vienna Woods it's very quiet when the snow is actually falling - before it snows the crows,when the sky begins to darken and wind the gets up, give a concert and sometimes a display of acrobatics - after the snowfall the songbirds burst forth. It may different in Hyde of course.

    I heard only the stream
    Of my thoughts
