David, I belong to the ones, who doesn't know what it is. ;) I can only guess - it looks like some roots or maybe a kind of mushroom. I hope you will tell me. :)

Best regards, May

Hello May. Ok, I will just tell you only:-)Yes it type of Mushroom. But not the eatable type I don't think. But when I first looked at it up close, I thought it could have be the back of a longneck tortoise.But its continued to grow since I took photo of it and each day it gets even bigger, but we do have some nice Mushrooms coming up in the garden. A few months back, I about 14 trailer loads of sheep manure out of some sheepyards on a farm, which is idea for the garden and now up come all these mushroom:-) Best Wishes,David

If you did not tell, I don't know what the wild thing is. The mushrooms looks very nice.

Cheers, Jeff

It's amazing what grows on sheep's manure David. I thought it might be some sort of wasp nest in the thumbnail :)

Greetings, Amelia

Hello Amelia. Thanks for your comment.Since I took the photo it just keeps on growing everyday.I took more photo of it yesterday. When I had the farm, our best mushroom were always found either in the sheepyards or close to them. Now in the garden, they are popping up everywhere.Very Tasty with steak,onions and vegys:-)By the way,the flowers in the garden just love this sheep manure.I have a fair few Stocks in at the moment and they have been flowering for some time and will go right through until Dec I think.Thank again for your visit.Best Wishes to you,David

Hi David this looks a bit like a puffball..we get ones here and they burst open and set loose all these spores...is this similar to that ????

See ya from Sandy ;)

sugarbag1 on June 25, 2009

Goodevening Sandy.No, its not a puffball.I know what you mean about how they scatter thier spores in the dust that comes out of them. No, this think is toadstill.But when I took photo it was about 5 inches across, now its very large and still growing. Its a wonder it hasn't attracted attention from the road as its quiet visable. I only put it on here, just for fun. By the way, we have a heap of rain,coming in Midday Fri and its looks as thought its not going to rain for the next 10 days, so it will all be heading you way by Sat-Sun I think.Its got cold over here too.If you check my link again Fri or Sat, you see what I am talking.Best Regards,David
