Maybe....and maybe they aren't stinkhorns as the other poster said.
Unless they open and you really see the structure you can't be sure.
I remember the stinkhorns I had in my hard really did stink throughout
their whole growth, so I guess yours aren't.

They kind of resemble immature or abortive mushrooms of the genus
Amanita. Many amanitas are attractive to flies, especially the classic
Amanita muscaria, which grows in association with conifer or birch tree
roots. Most amanitas are poisonous; some are among the most toxic
mushrooms on Earth. Some are good eating. A few are hallucinogenic.
But I really do think those are stinkhorns and yes, some smell better
(less worse?) than others, and some don't stink until they sporulate.
You just have to admire them for their audacious aspect, especially some
of the more suggestive species! A repugnant, yet fascinating design.
Hard to kill a stinkhorn, no matter how funky it looks and smells.
