The first is a puffer, but I'm not positive which variety. Did you see the inside by chance? If it was white, its a gem studded, but I think its the one with a dark gray inside.
The second two are purple russullas.
The last one is a cup ???? I forget.

My grandfather got us started on it as young children and I just kept up with it as I grew older.

a mushroom sits down next to a cute toadstool at a bar and says, " hi ...can I buy you a drink?"

the toadstool declines and blushes....

So the mushroom says....., "Why not?! I'm a Fun Guy!"

lol - yeh xob, I'm starting to feel that way lately.
Anyway here is one I found recently - Its an "Elegant Stinkhorn"

Rather phallic and very colorful, yet smells really bad. DO NOT TOUCH.
The mud looking stuff at the top is NOT MUD!

We had this bad boy come up in the back yard this spring -- looks morel-ish but not really.

That is a blue pilot G-2, prob an 07 (most common) but could be a 05 even, can't see the marking to be sure. How lucky to find one in your yard though! They're the best.

That is a false morel - I am not sure which one - My book is in my car. I'll see if I can get it at lunch. Ok I got it and found a pick online to post too. One indicator of a false versus true morel is to cut it in 1/2 from top to bottom the false will look like a cap and the true will have a cavity inside.
This is, believe, your guy. Gyromitra esculenta nice link.

This shows a true morel and what it looks like cut in 1/2. The false will not have that "cavity or space" This is not a foolproof test.

yes, the innards were chambered -- not a single cavity. and thus, it was not fried-up with the lamb chops.

oh, and yes it is a G-2:p

We had en enormous white mushroom in the shape of a ball in our yard a couple weeks ago. Larger than a softball, more like one of those really big grapefruits.

Anyway, our neighbor saw it from across the street and asked if he could have it. He took it into his yard and left it there to hopefully have babies. He's really into mushrooms too and said it was the largest of this type of mushroom he had ever seen. Too bad I didn't get a picture.
