I had a different post in mind for you today but no worries, I'll do that one tomorrow. This one can't wait. I'm in a tizzy of curiosity. What the hell is it?
I went out to get the mail and saw these growing in my flower bed. The beds were sadly neglected this year as we did nothing with them due to all the remodeling work outside this summer. Amidst all the old mulch, dead roots, acorns, leaves and weeds is this big orange tube smeared with gunk at the pointy tip. It's about the size of my little finger.
The stench from these strange growths is amazing.
This one had what looks to be "dead" ones next to it.
Anyone have a clue? My best guess is they are some sort of fungus. I hope someone knows for sure what they are!.
Thank you for visiting my blog today!
