Note the small, aborted mushroom growing at base of stem.  This
illustrates how mushrooms are sometimes formed by mycelia, which is
made up of microscopic hyphae that emerge from the ground (or other
substrate) and through cell modification create a stem, cap, gills and, most
importantly, spore producing cells.
Entoloma vernum is found frequently during morel season (April and
May) growing from the ground; pink spore print.  The pointed cap is
also distinctive.
