The Botanical Gardens of the University of Leicester

For a long time I searched Google in vain for the official website of the University of Leicester's Botanical Gardens, within walking distance of where I live. I now have it, http://www.le.ac.uk/biology/info/blgard.html
Because I had been unable to find the website though I took my camera over in May 2003 for photos to place on this page. (As usual please click on the thumbnails to get the larger picture.) If anyone can correct errors I would be grateful. (Not only could I not find the website, but inside the beautiful gardens I failed to find all the plant labels!)
