Spiky Puffball Pictures
    #12974954 - 07/29/10 09:46 PM (4 years, 5 hours ago)

Found these while on a bike ride today...









They were growing from grass, had a short, stubby stalk, and their insides were white and almost fluffy.  The spikes on the outside sort of flaked off when handled.

Namaste.

Very pretty!

The rule of thumb with puffballs is, if you cut them open and they're solid white on the inside, they're edible.
