What's Growing Today

This is what is growing in the garden today! Any idea what variety they might be?
Above, is a view of the underside.

They are growing on the north side of a bed. The land slopes down a little here so the bed and pathway act as a little terrace in the middle of the garden. The north side of the bed can be very shaded, especially during the winter. I've noticed mushrooms along this area before. I don't see them in other parts of the garden.

Are they not toadstools?

Oops, that was my delete. I left out a couple of words :)
I love the first picture. Not sure what kind they are, but they look pretty close up!

Hm, I feel like I've seen those around here too but no idea what they're called. Cute!

Pick a cap and put it gill-side down on paper, half on white, half on black paper. You'll get a spore print which will help you to identify it. Oh, and you'll also need a mushroom identification guide, of course.
