I took has been this picture Sunday afternoon during a bike trip together with my wife.
The picture is taken exactly on the border of the Netherlands, the farmer with tractor work on Belgian territory.
After the long winter we got almost no rain you can see the dust cloud behind the tractor, this gives a nice effect on these picture.
The church is old, during WAR II 1944 very heavy damaged

I wish everyone a nice new work week, dear TE members..

History from these small village:
Middelburg was originally a farming operation and possession of the Abbey of Middelburg. Circa 1427-1433 sold the abbey of Middelburg however Colard the Fever, a burgher of Bruges. Middelburg was sold after his death by his widow, Margaret Bladelin, to her brother Pieter Bladelin. This happened at least for 1444. In that year Bladelin wore after his lands and possessions in Middelburg on loan to the then Count of Flanders, Philip the Good. However, this elevation was only just the beginning of Bladelins plan: the development of a full new city. If Burgundian state official and confidant of the Duke (Bladelin was, after a short period of service of the city to have stood Bruges in 1441 general receiver of the Burgundian finance) he was in an excellent position to end the privileges required by his employer to obtain. The next step came in 1451. When obtained Bladelin of Philip the Good of the authorization in order to unify with the borrowing of Letters Aartrijke that Bladelin had purchased. The year before Middelburg Letters Aartrijke were called hereditary receipt. The loan holder of such loan was the Count of Flanders annually to pay a fixed amount. That amount should the loan holder to collect yourself first called to the grounds covered by the loan actually owned and edited. This unification was important because Bladelin as the (low) Middelburg acquired jurisdiction to which he previously did not already own. Middelburg was actually a simple loan was without jurisdiction, no glory. However, the recipient of the Letters Aartrijke owned or jurisdiction: if a shows a plot of land belonging to his only wanted to sell, it had to intervene herein.
