Nearly 50 years ago, God inspired Howard Finster to build Paradise Garden, an enormous display of sculptures and paintings scattered among a mirror-covered tree house, a tornado of rusted bicycles, and a towering church.

Take a midnight tour if you please, with garden cats Calvin and Hobbes underfoot.
