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 :-)

I cannot have been thinking clearly to name that file "drupe". Very
silly of me for doing so, indeed.

Thanks for being gentle with me, Mary :-)
