"There is a pretty garden in this house."
Translation:Hay un jardín bonito en esta casa.
A garden in a house? I'm sure it's possible, but not very common in Britain. Does this make more sense to those here from other countries in the English speaking world?
No, it doesn't make to me either. Never heard of it here in the U.S. When I think of a garden, I always think of it as outside. I mean I guess you could have some plants in pots that are in your house and put them together that could make up a garden, but I wouldn't call it that.
I agree with the previous posts I have never seen or heard of a garden in the house
Strange, the Spanish answer came back "there is a monkey garden in this house." Also interior gardens and courtyards are fairly common in the Spanish/Latin American world. We visited some of my wife's family in Coro, Estado Falcon in Venezuela. The house had an opening built into the roof . The living room, dining room, and kitchen were under the roof. All other closed rooms surrounded the garden. It is a somewhat equatorial/Mediterranean thing where temperatures are constant.
