Corralitas Drive: Another Random Mushroom

Photo: Diane Edwardson, February 21, 2015.  While talking to a neighbor, I noticed what looked like a 1.5" diameter, almost perfectly round rock at the base of her Climbing Fig.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

Nope, not a rock.  Neither of us have seen a mushroom like this before.
