An alien in the yard

Yesterday I found an unidentified "thing" jutting out of the  thick ground cover on my yard.  I've never seen anything like it before. It has a rather filigree-like  outer cover and a tiny hole sits on its top. It is not exactly what I would consider beautiful but neither is it ugly to look at. It's just interesting and strange.

 Thinking it might be a mushroom, I did some online search that yielded nothing. None of  the photos of mushrooms I saw on the internet resembled the strange thing in my yard.

Several thoughts occurred to me. Could the "thing" be a new still undiscovered species? It must be of a plant. The thing seems stationary and couldn't possibly be an animal or a reptile.

My rather wild imagination starts churning and I see a form of life. From another planet or dimension perhaps?.  It is a   tiny creature, maybe a highly developed spore. Though small, "Spore" has the energy-power of a gazillion stars and the accompanying brilliance. 

It talks to the birds and the bees, the flowers and the trees. "Let me tell you about love," it even sings and soundlessly. It radiates wisdom and benevolence.

Here it is

 All photos are untouched. Can somebody please tell me what it is?

  1. Great photos and accompanying write up. Yep, that is one fine specimen. My guess is it's a mushroom, not an alien. But then, it could be an alien mushroom.
