Punxsutawney Phil may have declared six more weeks of winter, but the blog world has a case of spring fever. Whether it’s a unique planter or a color warm-up, our favorite bloggers are buzzing.

We love the book-geek charm of these planters:

Terra cotta pots are disappearing from gardens as fast as melting snow. Plants take on new life in interesting containers, like this concrete planter built to look like an apartment complex:

    I absolutely love the wallpaper with the three young girls on it. I have two sisters and two long time friends that are like sisters to me and I would certainly do one wall (maybe in a craft room) with that paper. Technology is great. I can't believe they can blow a photo up that large.

    How does the plants work in the books? A plastic liner inside to not ruin the books? That is very cool.
