I recently have discovered some type of thing growing in my flower garden. It has a tube type thing deep orange near top that graduates to a cream color. At the end in ground it has a white egg. The flies are covering the top in droves and it almost smells fishy. Any suggestions how to get rid of it or what it is???

It is a stinkhorn fungus taking advantage of the wet and hot weather to “flower”.  You can get rid of it by putting on some disposable gloves and scooping it unto a garbage bag and throwing it out.  It may make another appearance in future years when conditions are exactly right for it again.   It is harmless other than the stench.
