I found this in my back yard (Charleston, SC), but only one so I'm not sure it's origin is local. The dried petals/leaves came off to reveal what looks like a unicorn horn 😊 It seems to be from a tree. Anyone? Thanks in advance. (Pardon my Easter dyed fingers)

I am going to take a wild guess and say its from a Magnolia tree.

Yes. 5-6 of those little leaves that fell off bc they were very dry. Any ideas?
