Just had 2 more of those funny looking mushrooms come up in the yard. One is about 8" across and the other probably 6". I still haven't come up with what they are except good conversation pieces. If anyone has any ideas let me know. I have been on the internet and didn't find anything like these.
Thanks guys.
Hello Carolyn and Welcoem to the place...DO oyu have a picture of the mushrooms that are coming up in your yard?...that would be helpful in ID'ing them for you. Look forward to seeing you around the forums.
Do they look like these mushrooms?

If these are the ones let me tell you what happened to us. They usually appear after a hard rain and the extension service said that if there are any decaying roots underground they will appear. We usually harvest them in grocery sacks and discard them. Otherwise the tops become a brownish liquid after they sit for awhile and become slippery while walking on the lawn. Don't throw them into a trash can because they will eat the bottom right out and stain whatever they sit upon.

Welcome to the forum too!
We've had a lot of rain lately and I have loads of mushrooms growing in my yard too. Most are small but it's not unusual to see big ones. Sorry I can't be of any help to ID them but glad to have you join us Carolyn. Welcome aboard.
we have also had alot of rain and Im seeing them too popping up on the lawns, but I wouldnt take the chance.....

welcome to the group!!!
We have shrooms come up like that but it is usually where there is a rooting stump under ground.
