On Aug 30 found these 3 while watering. The red one easy to see,
a clump of gray ones to the left and a light colored one left of the grays.

You have an interesting collection, patootie! This has been a good year for fungi - we had lots of rain. I'm finding new ones every day. This pink one looks like an ear coming out of the base of an old, rotting hemlock stump. It doesn't have gills, so I think it's a Jelly Fungus.

I found an old hemlock log just covered in these tiny little mushrooms. The stems are wiry, so if you flick them they vibrate back and forth - very entertaining.

Let's see some more fungi!

June, it does look like an ear. Love the pink.
I missed a photo op last week. Had 2 stacked togather or it was
a double decker, kinda pink or reddish. My DS has a book about
mushrooms. If I can find it,
I will try to look some of these up.

Grits I;m not sure that they're the same. My pattern was not as large as yours. As mine aged, the color and
pattern stayed the same. Looks like the color on yours got lighter.. Very interesting these mushrooms. :-)

Found this one in Aug this yr.

Got some new ones.

This kinda looks like a Dog Stinkhorn??? My guess based mostly on the sheath

No clue on this.

Close up of this red one in layers
