I have dark green jelly like rubbery blobs on a gravel area of my garden. These blobs seem to be increasing and I have no idea what this is.



Commenting to follow the question. I've got something similar on my path, slipped on it a couple times. No clue what it is.

I know this sounds silly, but you haven't dropped any water-retaining granules, have you? I've done that in the past and it expands alarmingly in the rain.

Definitely not in my case. Not unless someone else has been working in the garden without me knowing. Good point though.
