Great Southern Hwy, Brookton

One hour drive to the worksite (Vegetation removal) and things are starting to look greener, good news for the farmers in this part of the wheat-belt.

Found this marker peg just off the road with an “R” engraved in it. The peg looks like it has been there for some time.
Anyone know what it’s for?

Found some melons growing wild along the roadside, I was once told they were pig melons. Further investigation (google) states that they could be Paddy melon (Cucumis myriocarpus) or Afghan melon (Citrullus lanatus) or Pig Melon (Citrullus colocynthis).

Pinjarra-Williams Rd, Williams.

Just a 230km trip to Pinjarra-Williams Rd for some verge maintenance.

Just across from us was an old homestead, in the day it must have cost a small fortune as it is quite large and made of brick.
I wonder who use to own it, and when it was built.

At our 80km signs, was the Boraning Cemetery commonly known as the Marling Cemetery.  A bicentennial plaque also states that this was the burial site of the early pioneers of the Lower Williams River. The land was original a private burial ground owned by the Lavender family of Marling.
As early as 1908 the Lavenders wished to have it declared a public cemetery, and it was finally gazetted in December 1944.
