Lycoperdon marginatum


The first photo was about the size of a golf ball, and the second is one very tiny, and not much bigger than a grape. Both are almost completely rounded, with spiky bumps sticking up. When I first seen the larger one, I had thought that it was a golf ball.


Found in the middle of yard amongst the regular grass.


I will have to research more, but some of these are edible.

Thanks Gerardo, that is it, and interesting to find out that some are edible. Hope to research the edible ones further, as these seem to be springing up all over my property the last few weeks. How cool would it be to be able to eat them.
