Hello again dear experts,
Is it OK if I omit the word any in the following sentence:

1. Have you got flowers in your garden?
2. Have you got any flowers in your garden?

Both sentences can be used. Difference being:

1. Have you got flowers in your garden?-- asking in general, if flowers are available in the garden.

2. Have you got any flowers in your garden?-- asking if the person has atleast some flowers in the garden.
