An deserted trailer hitch lies in captivity behind a chain link fence. Though its usefulness may have diminished (or, at the least, been ignored), its structure serves as shelter for the wandering insects and small mammals. The fencing may serve its purpose of keeping intruders out (and an abandoned trailer hitch in), but its criss-cross pattern also encourages plant growth in an upward fashion. So many times objects are designed for one purpose, but utilized for another. This duality is really quite a gift (often overlooked!) - imagine if we looked for those secondary functions on a regular basis instead of merely relying on their known use!

  1. Thinking outside the box - it's always good to find new creative uses for what we already own.
