    What is this purple/black pod with pointer in my garden?

    Ok not the best picture, sorry, between phone and overcast skies didn't get bright enough. These have been all in my garden as it has died off. I keep finding them on top of the soil. They are dark purple to black with a pointed end that looks like a stinger. They are hard to the touch. I haven't squeezed them because I don't want to kill or destroy it without knowing what it is. Any ideas? If it matters I am in south eastern USA.

    It look like a butterfly cocoon or chrysalis.

      Oh my gosh you are right. I feel bad I have been uncovering them and tossing them into random parts of my yard I don't venture in. Thank you. I will be a bit more gentle now that I know.
