Odd Finds On My Trip

At one of the shops in the Mennonite area was this tall plant. What does it look like to you? I haven't a clue what it is but it does look suspectful.
July 5th Update - - Thanks to my anonymous tipster here is the plant.

Need some good health? How about this remedy?


"Good for Whatever Ails You" and a Money Back Guarantee!



In the grocery store we noticed all things were in bags. Likely bagged from bulk boxes brought in. OR...as my guys suggested somebody meticulously took and separated all the Lucky Charms from the cereal! Just Charms anybody?

Mrs. Goodneedle said...

Charms by the pound, YUM! ;)

Do you think that good health recipe works on bad knees?! I need me some if it does!! LOL! Cindy

Ummm...do you think that green plant is the main ingredient in the Good Heath recipe? It does say it is natural and organic...

Have a great weekend. ~Natalie

Laura said...

Oh how cute - Just Charms. Yummmy. I have to admit that Lucky Charms are a weakness of mine. I challenge myself to walk by them and lord help me if their on sale. It's a lot easier when they're $5/ box. That I can leave behind but 2 for 1. Oh lordy bee help me. As for the plant, some Maple's have a similar leaf pattern as do invasive weeds that aren't Weed. Please don't ask me how I know this.

Did you buy the plant? Those really are some odd finds!

I grew up on Lucky Charms, I would leave the cereal behind and just "fish" out the charms, my Mom would get so mad at me...can't wait to tell her you can just buy the charms (lol)
Interesting looking plant the Mennonite have there.

Heidi said...

Me, me, me ... lol! I used to save all the charms in the Lucky Charms cereal and eat them last when I was a girl. LOL! Humm... that plant looks like something illegal doesn't it? I wonder if it is in the medicine that cures all that ails you. :-)

Hugs ~

Looks like okra to me....but my DH would tell you that okra SHOULD be illegal!

Kaaren said...

My retired police officer husband says that the plant isn't what our suspicious minds thought it was. He doesn't know what it is but it isn't 'mary jane'.

But he sure recognized the 'charms'! Yummo!

I love to shop in the Mennonite and Amish stores. They always have such a wonderful selection of foods and goodies.

Libby said...

I think I could use a bottle of that elixir *s*

Cathi said...

Before I even read your post and saw the first picture, I was starting to question your sanity! LOL

Lucky Charms are okay but I would really like a bag of the Christmas berries in the Christmas Captain Crunch!

looks like a real trip back in time at the Mennonite store.

Sherry said...

Your asking what bring me back to your blog. Well I thought hard about this and I have many things that I like there sweet and short educatioial, but I think most of all when ever I needed help with a questions or sometimes I just needed a comment you allways seemed to say the right words. So I have to say that we have never meet but I do feel that were blog friends. Thanks

Anne said...

Oh...that plant looks VERY suspicious. Not that I'd know. LOL

Orcsmom said...

Oh, Lucky Charms, oh yeah! I have been the guilty one in our house to pick all of the yummt marshmello treats out of the box and just leave the cereal. And now about that plant, hummm. Good luck with your garden!

Judy said...

Well we had the biggest Hybiscus plant next to our front door that looked very similar to that in an older rental house. Let me tell you EVERY pizza teen who delivered looked at us and the plant and us again with his mouth open. I swear I expected it to be gone one day!Stolen by some pimply teen who did not believe it wasn't MaryJane!

MARCIE said...

Looks like you had a great trip. I would love to do that one day. That star quilt looks so cool! Are you home for a while now?

Candace said...

Well as soon as I saw that plant photo, I was a little suspect, too, Mary!!! Glad is was Hibiscus - LOL! I would also be a little suspect of the contents of that bottle - hee, hee! We found an all vegetarian store while at the Squash House last week - all things were bagged like this, too!
Cheers!

How did I miss this post. I have been checking your blog but I didn't enter the giveaway because I didn't think I would get around to making the pattern and I didn't want to disappoint you.
We found one of stores in Elkin where they sell stuff in bags like that.
