Hi Paula;
There is nothing underlined in your quotation.
However, the modifiers are small and flowering.
The trees are not just trees, these are modified into small trees.
The plants are not just plants, these are modified into flowering plants.
The word decorated is a verb.
The word courtyard is a noun.
