Blue Monday?

Somebody came up with the idea that the Monday of the last full week of January was the most depressing day of the year.  Not when you get a new Veseys  catalogue in the mail!The cover features a lovely pink veronica. I don't have a suitable place for that, but it is very pretty.
Let's look at some other plants inside-

A striking Siberian iris "Shaker's Prayer" is on my maybe list.  I do have a good spot for that.

 I know there are SO many hostas around, but I did like the way the lighter part of these leaves pops forward making each leaf look like a smaller leaf was lying on a larger, darker one.

 Another eye-catching hosta ("Humpback Whale")that not only is very blue, but grows to be very large.  Both hostas are tempting, but do I really need to buy another hosta or two when I can keep dividing the ones I have?
Some questions are never resolved.

Another pretty Siberian iris which is on the maybe list.

In the bargain section, I found "Pardon Me" daylily which I have been wanting for a while so I will likely buy it.  I already have two "David" phlox but they really are a superior plant so maybe I will get one more.  At $5, it's pretty cheap.
Veseys has a very good on-line catalogue ( if you don't get a hard-copy one.  Also at the end of the season, they have an on-line sale of the left-over items usually for 50% off. That's always worth checking out.
Happy dreaming!
