That's very nice - but are snowdrops drupes?

Thanks, Mary. No, snowdrops are never drupes. Sorry, it's my silly file
naming scheme... They looked "droopy" to me, but I used "drupe" because
it looked "prettier" ;-)

Ah! I see. I was worried for a while that for nearly sixty years I'd
misunderstood what drupes were :-)

Nice picture by the way :-)
