This picture has been taken during a visit to one of the most beautiful rural areas out of my area, 6 km about the Netherlands border, to Aardenburg, one hour after a thunderstorm. I have waited on the farm to after the thunderstorm for make the picture.
The sky was dark blue not as usual.
Aardenburg a small city with a very nice history between Belgium and the North Sea.

The tulip has come to be a loved symbol of the Netherlands.
Many tourists visit the country just to see the bright colored flower and the astonishing view over the bulb fields. The season begins in March with crocuses, followed by the daffodil and the yellow narcissi. In April the hyacinths and tulips blossom to sometime in mid May, depending on the weather. Later, in August it is time for the gladioli. Even when spring is over, the Netherlands is still a garden, visitors can enjoy flowers in the Netherlands all year round.

I wish everyone a nice day.
