Parasola plicatilis
(Also knows as Coprinus plicatilis)
Japanese Parasol or Pleated Inky Cap
Order Agaricales, family Psathyrellaceae
CAP THIN, TINY, PLEATED
Cap: 1-3 cm wide; conical when young, becoming flat; grooved like a paper parasol; gray with brown disc at center; flesh thin, sometimes transparent.

The spores were most likely in the soil or drifted in and with some water and sun they just popped up. This is a common urban fungus and is harmless (but don't eat it unless you want to take a trip and not even leave the garden). To get rid of the mushrooms just stir up the soil.
