Weird growings on...

Under the cherry tree in the back of our yard, we have a lot of
mushrooms...some look like this...

near these, we also had this....

Now it looks like this...



Any ideas?

I have received word this is an Elegant Stinkhorn.
Thank you Grace and Forte for the link, and Zilla too!!
You Gals Rock!!

Mutinus elegans, or elegant stinkhorn.

Wow, she's a little tardy! According to Audubon, they don't usually appear after September!

You're right. That's weird! I bookmarked this site yesterday thinking it might come in handy in the future:

hard to identify...maybe it aspired to be something it didn't quite become?

I just love fungi! They are so beautiful and unusual. I received a wonderful fungi book for Christmas and the pics in it are just lovely. Merry Christmas and thankyou for the great pics. Looking forward to reading more.
