ROSELAND - Bill and Helene Dykstra's garden is not a garden, but rather an oasis. Plants adorn nearly every inch of their backyard ranging from perennials to annuals. The couple pays great attention to detail with the flowers in perfect rows of pink and purple.

Little figurines are placed throughout, creating miniature scenes of farms, beaches and even a beaver pond.

The garden is open to the public for viewing from noon until dusk daily, weather permitting. To get there: take Kandiyohi County Road 5 south of Roseland for one mile, go east on 210th Avenue and turn south on 37th Street. Each turn is well signed.

The grounds are handicapped accessible.

Freewill donations for Guatemala are accepted.
