This funky mushroom popped up in my yard yesterday. It was about 4 1/2 inches tall with an orange stem and an odd shaped cap. The cap looked like it was a cream color but that layer had mostly peeled back revealing an orange layer. Through both layers, were several “sink holes” in the cap with a brown slimy fluid. That same fluid had gathered at the base of the fungi forming a little moat. This mushroom had an odor (not pleasant) and the flies and gnats were very active and visiting the slimy stuff in the holes and the moat.
I have no idea what this was.... I do know that I sure wouldn’t want to eat it!
I also found some of this Button Clover in the yard. I was pretty excited about this because I think it is such a cool plant with the spiral seed pods.
