I noticed this sticking up beside my lilac tree this morning. It has a pretty gross smell to it, it is spongy feeling, hollow through the pink area and then red on the tip. I have never seen this before anywhere in my yard or even in the city I live in. If you know what it is please let me know, also if its poisonous I would like to know as well. Thank you.

    Looks like a stinkhorn mushroom. Not poisonous, but as bad as they smell, it probably should be.
