Those are neat, Kale. They're not edible, by the way.

I'm going to leave mine be too, even though no one seems to know what they are. Or maybe I'll make a nice soup for Sweetle.

They are all just part of the garden and are just helping to decompost all the "untreated" mulch into soil.
Nice colony of Bird's Nest!
The black structure in the cup are the spore cases. When it rains the raindrops hit the spore case and disperses the spores. The shape of the cup helps to send the spores further out around the area.


So Ron the ones I have on a decomposing tree stump are just speeding up the process?

My mushrooms are back. These look a bit different though.

Oh, are they ink caps, Ron? The ones I post last year (below) looked different to me, so I wasn't sure. Those did go black and messy, but these have been intact for quite a few days now. The ink caps like disturbed areas too, and that's where they grew last year. But the ones from this year are just tucked under a shrub.

I wish I'd had a camera yesterday. We tirned around in someone's driveway and there was a puffball that looked like a kid's white ball under a tree. I've been noticed all sorts of fungi lately. The big one in my yard is gone though.

I wish you had too, Poe. I posted this pic of puffballs last year. They send their spores flying, hence the name puffball.

Sounds like Puffballs Maingal. There are many different kinds.
Here's one i found this morning. It will turn brown as it matures.
