Anyone know what this is?

I've notices a few of these appear in a part of my garden where we tad removed large conifers, and thoroughly weeded. The ground is all clear apart from these which have popped up. Kinf I'd weird looking things with no root, and the central ball shape has a little hole in the top. 
Any ideas?
Thanks Alan

    They're a type of fungi called earth stars.

    when the weather is dry you can tap them to release little "smoke signals"

    Beautiful things. This year seems to be a good year for them
