We noticed a very few of these growing along the edge of our driveway at the bottom of a steep hill covered with ivy and with one ancient dogwood. They are very dark matte black. Kind of rubbery like a succulent and only about 2 inches tall. Can you tell us what they are and a little about them?

    Could it be black trumpet mushrooms?

    I don’t think so. They are flat, not curved at all.

    That’s it! Thank you! By the way, are they dangerous to our dogs? (They eat everything)
