A fairy ring, also known as fairy circle, elf circle, elf ring or pixie ring,

I got one in my yard again this year.

 

 

Same ring as last year... The circle is way to big to get in one picture.

It should get bigger in diameter each year as it consumes the organic "food" and moves out each year for new food.
