Pat Kennedy - Your Washington, DC Real Estate Connection


May Flowers

Today, I got out of the house and into the car for a trip to Georgetown Hospital to get my new bionic knees checked out.  And on the way, we passed Georgetown Lutheran Church's amazing gardens.  There were reds and pinks and yellows with roses all over the place!  I made my sister, Joan, who was driving (the bionic knees aren't up to driving yet) pull over.  I pulled out my iPad, and voila!  I really loved the cascade of pink roses over the red church door.


If you are planning a move to or from the Washington, DC metropolitan area, I can help.  I am licensed in DC, Maryland and Virginia.   Please email me at or call 202-549-5167.

 That is such a colorful picture I really enjoyed it and I loved the old church! Bionic knees huh well when they are great you need to go back to France!

Yolanda, I went to Paris with my mom a few months after she got her bionic knee.  I can't wait to get back.

Thanks, Pat, for sharing your photograph. You should be walking through gardens very soon. Or, visit Longwood Gardens and they will provide a power wheelchair for your tour.

Love the flowers against the stone of the church.  Hope those Bionic knees will have you exploring all your favorite places on foot soon.

Oh, the knees are getting better a little bit each day!  And yeah, it's easier to get even better photos when you can get out of the car.

The one good thing about all the rain we've been having is the pops of color all over.  Hope your knees are improving quickly and that you're back to driving and running around on them soon.
