This grenade garden is trying to create something timeless, beautiful and full of hope out of something that at first glance, looks hopeless. The middle east, like many other countries, has been ravaged by war. The remains of these wars grasp onto the soil as painful reminders of past violence. A Palestinian woman has filled up used tear gas grenades with flowers and is cultivating them to bring beauty to the land.

The sheer amount of grenades in the garden is intense, it's a staggering look at what war can do to a region. These photos show that the power of hope is much more powerful than the pain of war.

The garden is regularly cultivated, watered and flowers are constantly being added, which is both a beautiful addition to the garden and a painful reminder that the battle isn't over yet.
