Description:

Not sure what this is?! Stem looked too thick for AD. It was growing in the shade of a tumble-down wall, where a lot of decaying grass clippings were heaped. Not sure if it was growing on grass clippings, or through them. It was a solitary specimen, with none like it nearby. Any ID help appreciated.
