those look like pine needles around the mushrooms.

for future reference for you…corts are one of the easier mushrooms to get to genus, at least:
they have a cob-webby partial veil or cortina that covers the gills when young, that drops down to leave its remains on the stipe. This is also where the rusty brown spore drop catches. All else: size, shape, color (purple is popular), viscid or dry, is pretty variable, but the cortina plus rusty brown spores (both present in your photo) make it a cort.
