'Things' In The Yard

I took some time away from my 2-story addition to do some badly needed work on the back yard. One of the issues was the sand box.

I built this for the kiddos about 5.5 years ago....

And this was the sandbox 'then'....

This is the sandbox now...and after I removed the rotted wood. I didn't expect redwood to rot that quick

Does anyone know what this is? It was all over the inside cover on the sand box....seems to have the texture of a mushroom...with a different shape...

But I know what these things are......

Yea....I know some people see them as 'beneficial's"....but, sorry, I don't like spiders.....


Even if you are on the right track, you will still get run over if you just sit there.

the 4th pic shows musroom mycelium. It's kind of like a mushroom's roots.
