Hot Cocoa, anyone?

I ordered roses a month ago, and planted them as soon as they got in.  My plan was to place a Hot Cocoa rose next to a plumbago, so I could put orange smack dab against blue.  (I wanted to frighten the neighbrs!)  Both plants are sooo little, they've got a lot of growing to do, but this is where I am going.

(Marie, see my weeds?)

On the knitting front, now that I've been liberated from task knitting, I've been playing and swatching.  I cast on for a cabled jumper that I saw in Sandra earlier this year-I love the pattern, but the merino with a metallic filament was just going to give me PITA cable crossing every row, so I frogged that little bit and moved on.  I got my new IWK in yesterday, so I browsed thru it and the new Vogue.  I think I have my next victim.  It's pretty mindless knitting, but maybe it's time for me to do some slackjawed stitching.  I'll know in a day or two.....

What weeds? That's nothing compared to what I have. Ok, I may have inelegantly hacked through the front yard to get rid of all the weeds that sprouted up after the rainstorms last month. Then they came back with a vengeance.
