Your posting experience is strange and I
have found similar odd things, as you know.

We have plenty of wood around for all sorts
of fungi to feed on. I was hoping for some
good ones in or near the log deck, but there
were none there. Then I found these, as I
said, on an old fence piece.

Thanks again for your input.

You're welcome, Julia! Strange thing, I had put up a different stock picture last night when I first saw this, even more of a dead ringer for your picture than this one. But this morning I went to change one word in my added comment -- not the data for the picture itself -- and the whole picture disappeared when I submitted! I could not get it to go back into place, so I had to substitute this one. Strange goings-on! But I recognized the fungus immediately. I see them often in my own mulch piles; they seem to favor wood to grow on.

Oh, bless you Kathy!

I knew if you saw this you could tell us
what they are. I had guess as much about
the "little eggs" in the "baskets". Maybe
that should have been my title..."Little
Eggs In Baskets".

Thank you so very much, Kathy, for adding
your information here.

Birds-nest fungus, not uncommon in wood-chip mulch and other organic matter. What look like eggs are little sacs of spores which splash out in the rain and will make new plants.

Thanks for looking, Mark and Ivan.

I really have to see if I can find some
information on these little critters.

I sure don't recognize them. Don't think I have ever seen the likes of these before. Nice shot.
