    Most mushrooms are harmless. I can't identify them, but I wouldn't worry about them.

    Oh my goodness.. Just TODAY we had the EXACT same lil' things pop up in our yard! I looked them up, they are Parasola Plicatilis, and here is a link! They disappear after a couple of hours, but such a fitting name since they DO look like little parasol umbrellas!

    Neat looking little mushrooms and very interesting too, thanks to the info found on Christina's link.

    We've had lots of rain this week also and I've found these mushrooms growing all over- kind of pretty, actually. Look like yours!

    , mushrooms like these have popped up all over my mulch with all of the rain we ve been having

    Yes, with all the rain I have more then ever. What can I do to get rid of them.

    Apparently they get rid of themselves in a few hours! Or perhaps something (squirrels?) is eating them. Since I don't have little kids any more, I don't worry about mushrooms in my yard.
