My ways and By-ways – Jill and Lil search for puddles

Just like Peppa Pig, my 3 year old Granddaughter Lily enjoys splashing around in muddy puddles. Usually November in the Colne Valley is a dead cert to spot loads, but yesterday was unusually bright and clear. As we set off with the challenge of finding some water to splosh in, it was also a good opportunity for Grandma to take photos of the light, shadow and frost on the usually bleak landscape of Marsden Moor.
