Picture of the day for November 25, 2016

Wikipedia picture of the day on November 25, 2016: Topiary (practice of clipping the foliage and twigs of trees and shrub to develop and maintain defined shapes) gardener (or artist?) working a cypress in the cemetery of Tulcán, located in the city of Tulcán, capital of the Carchi Province, north of Ecuador. The cemetery, of a surface of 8 hectares (20 acres), was founded in 1932 to replace the former on that was damaged in the 1923 earthquake. José María Azael Franco Guerrero was back in 1936 in charge of the city parks and started topiary works in the Tulcán cemetery. In the meanwhile the cemetery park has become internationally popular in the art of topiary and was renamed in 2007 to cemetery Azael Franco to honour his work.
