Hi Dfletch, Welcome!

I'm not sure what plant that bulb belongs to but I'll move this over to our Plant ID Forum where it will get more views and one of our knowledgeable plant identifiers may recognize it!

Welcome! to the forums

Its a type of fungus ....aka: "earth ball" or "hard puff ball"

some are edible - some are only edible if white on the inside

Warning: - get positive confirmation from a fungi expert before eating

It reminds me of some type of flowering bulb because I think I see "eyes"; one on the left and a couple at left bottom.

Or a Smilax tuber but I don't know if that is around on the other side of the pond.
