Stinky – Stinky – Stinky

30 May

If you smell something like a dead animal in your yard – it may just be one of these weird mushrooms!

This was growing in my lawn near where I park my car. Ick- what a smell! Apparently the smell attracts flies to the slimy inside so they can make more of themselves.
