A fairly random and sudden appearance of dog vomit slime mold - aka fuligo septica, appearing after a week of cool rain.

Either that, or my dog is sick!  ;).

I get dog vomit slime mold here and there a lot. Some of it looks like yours does, and some of it is a very bright yellow! Doesn't last long. I figure it's doing its work of breaking down organic matter....

I get it everywhere that I lay down cardboard and wood chips. It doesn't seem to cause any problems, so I don't worry about it.

Definitely, Diane!  

This one is on top of a pile of soil and wood chunks and some spoiled hay, so plenty of organic matter for it to feast upon!  Should make for some great compost down the road.

This one is fairly pale yellow, but yes, sometimes a very bright yellow- no idea what makes for the color variation!

We got a nice pile of dog vomit fungus on our hugel mound. Buttery yellow on the inside. Rather nice looking in a weird and disturbing way. It migrated about a quarter of an inch before it dried up.
