The Hummock at Cross Creek

The Hummock at Cross Creek

The Threshold to the Hummock, enter at your own risk.  Weekly Photo Challenge-Threshold

Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings wrote The Yearling and other books at her home in an orange grove in Cross Creek, Florida.  In her book and movieCross Creek, she talked about how quickly the undergrowth of the hummock could rise up and overtake the orange groves.  This is the hummock behind her home now and it has overtaken the orange grove and reclaimed it.  Her home is maintained by the state of Florida as a state park but the swamp hummock owns the grove.  So much of the book is alive and well in the carefully maintained home and is a treat to visit.  Just don’t step off the grounds into the hummock!
