Photo of the Week: An eternity of flowers

A Palestinian father and daughter welcome the beginning of spring by picking wild mustard flowers in an untilled field in the Gaza Strip.

The field of flowers is endless — an affront to the siege Gaza has seen for too many years.

Israel can try its hardest to squeeze the life out of this land, but nature always has a way.
