Peziza violacea

Found these at Mill Bank, near Sowerby Bridge today. They were in someone's garden fire-basin which they had covered with plywood presumably in an attempt to keep it dry.

I lifted the plywood off and found the rain had got in and wet the ashes where I was pleased to find these colourful gems. They actually looked more pinky-violet than the photo.

I kept a few specimens.
