Lovely shot, but excuse me if I'm being stupid, I've always though of "courtyards" as being outdoors, please put me right . ;>)

@Jeff & Pat: :))) You are not stupid :))) In our ancient homes in the villages, there would be a sunken rectangular space in the central hall with rooms all around opening from the aisles. This will be open to the sky This is generally called the inner courtyard. The owners here are toying with the idea of removing the swing and fill this with water and lilies bloom here !! Aw! That would be a sight to see!!!
