Great pics, great info.
And I laughed at the zombie penis you snuck in there.
Also very cute pic of you Tree, bravo!

Is it wrong that the mushroom pictures make me hungry?

Some boletes like the "King Bolete" are excellent to eat, others like the "Bitter Bolete" taste, well bitter. Oh, and this is a bitter beyond description. Your forehead may sink into your mouth if you try it - don't ask.

Another has a bright yellow underside that stains blue when touched - very cool, but also poisonous. That may be what you have here - can't really tell though.

Yesterday evening I was looking out the window and thought I saw a bright orange dish towel thrown on top of the mulch around a tree we have. I went out side for a closer look, and it was this amazing fungus. Maybe about an eighth of an inch thick covering about a square foot of area. Bright orange yellow. Looked like a thick coat of that orange coating on Doritos, sprinkled over the mulch. So thick you couldn't see through it. Creepy looking.

I scooped it up with rubber gloves into a bag to trow away, and saw that it went down into the mulch fairly deep. Got as much as I could without using a rake.

Any idea what that was, classic?

glatt - I know exactly what you are describing, I've seen it many times. I call it "orange fungus, but I don't know the real name for it. It grows on mulch a lot and is bright orange then goes tanish as it ages and then finally dark brown when dead.

Merc - the first two pics are turkey tails and the third looks like an old "Elm Oyster"

Here's a picture of the weird orange stuff.

And I went for a hike this morning with my daughter and took a picture of this shroom.

Glatt - The first is some type of slime mold or whatever - I don't know too much about them. I've seen them around, there are a lot of them that all seem similar except for different colors but I don't pay them much mind as I would never attempt to eat one.

The second looks like another "Old man of the woods" I found my first ones in NC, and they were very tasty. The Audubon book on mushrooms is excellent if anyone is interested. It still is rather early for all these to be out - normally they start in the fall. Guess I better get my ass out and about.
