Thayer Nursery, a six-acre, family-owned farm, has been showering the community with exceptional plants and gardening products since 1965. Thayer Nursery guarantees that their kiln-dried firewood contains no stowaway bugs and has moisture levels below 25%. Unlike regular seasoned wood, kiln-dried wood spends three days de-liquifying in a 200-degree kiln before it is stored safely in an element- and Hamburgler-protected barn. Because of this extra-special care, the wood burns cleaner, hotter, and longer, and it doesn't require a PhD in Boy Scouting to light. Kiln-fired logs also contain less chimney-fouling creosote. In addition to fire fuel, Thayer offers a bevy of bouncing baby nursery plants such as three-gallon potted roses ($22.50) and eight-inch mums ($9 each). Shrewd shrub-tenders can prepare their greenery for winter snows with a 40-pound bag of HollyTone fertilizer ($32) from Thayer's complete line of garden supplies. Thayer Nursery has an extensive selection of organic gardening materials and homegrown advice about sustainable growing practices. Even regular, flesh-toned thumbs can take on a Kermit hue with The Gardener's A to Z Guide to Growing Organic Food ($24.95).

Nothing beats the view from the skies, so it makes sense that a picture from hundreds of feet in the air can provide a new, beautiful perspective. At Cape Cod Aerial Photography, professional photographers use a Cessna 172 or a helicopter to climb to these scenic heights, taking shots with digital equipment. Click here to see some of the company’s shots, ranging from a broad shot of the Massachusetts Maritime Academy to a bird’s-eye view of the Zakim Bridge.
The company specializes in photography of Cape Cod (most shots take place within 50 miles of Plymouth Airport), but they’ve flown to numerous spots in New England, as far as Vermont and Connecticut. These kinds of photos can help proprietors advertise businesses or assist homeowners in visualizing how to arrange their living space when they move all their furniture to the roof.
