I assume some small person has been rolling joints.

Oh, you are HYSTERICAL, Clyde!

Some insect or spider has taken up residence, I assume.

No kidding – your blog is always so darn timely! I was about to send you a very similar picture! What are these? Egg cases of somebody, I assume….

Where did you find them?

Jan found them in her garden, in the soil.
