Red Car Property: Not Easter Eggs, "Puffball" Mushrooms

Photo: Diane Edwardson, April 4, 2012.  I have no idea which species of "Puffball" mushroom are growing on the Red Car Property between India St and the Silver Lake Ave Public Staircase.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

The larger one (foreground) is similar in size and appearance of a cantaloupe.
