Crepe or Crape...You Decide

Sometimes it's just the simple things in life that bring me pleasure.  Sometimes some thing just tickles my funny bone and sets me off on an adventure...like this sign.

I laughed out loud!  They spelled it wrong.  This amused me enough to take a picture and to investigate.  I'm half right or am I half wrong?  Do you have Crape Myrtles or Crepe Myrtles?

Here is a link to an expert so you may have your own little adventure or laugh at how easily I am entertained.

Either way, laugh, enjoy, have fun...it's Thursday!

I had three of them in my yard in Texas and I never even thought of the spelling, without reading your link I would have guessed either way!

They could've listed them as crap myrtles...

i have never had to spell it, but if I had, crepe is what i would have used. i went over and read that link, and she is funny to. i noticed she switched back and forth spelling it both ways... the English language is a mystery to me.

Sandy said...

I've seen it spelt several different ways. Isn't crape myrtle also called Lagerstroemia?

It's a beautiful plant and easy to take care of.

I've seen it both ways. All I know is that they are very pretty right now as they are all blooming.

Have a wonderful day, Gail. :-)

I would have laughed out loud too. That is so funny. Yep, every time I see someone do something like that it just tickles me and I do laugh.
So glad it is Thursday too.

Well I would have gone for crepe because that's the spelling my mind has for that word... coming from a generation that used crepe paper by the yard for party décor and decorating floats! But no matter what you call them I like them! :-)

We had Crepe Myrtle trees around the house I grew up in! They were one of my favorite trees! My parents planted one when they moved here to Nevada, but it didn't survive. I haven't seen one in years!

Empty Nester said...

Hahahaha! I've always seen it as Crepe. But what do I know? LOL
