Photo of CLOSED: Help.  What is this thing?

A photo of the whole weird thing, as promised. Now that it's out of the ground, I'm 99% sure it's plant matter. It has roots (note the fuzz!). As I'd mentioned, I had some suspicion that it might be related to a small volunteer shamrock/Oxalis that was growing next to it when it was discovered. I'm leaning even more that way now. If you look closely, you can see some shriveled up little leaves on one of the roots/stems. In life, these were very tiny shamrocks (rounded leaflets, not triangular in shape), and quite green. They died back several months ago, as is the custom with this genus of plants (I guess). Are we getting anywhere, my plant friends?? This is so much fun!! lf
