Who likes flowers?
Back in the 80s I had two friends who grew them. While they were fascinated by them, I didn't like the smell of death. The goddamn flies however, they loved that stink
Decades ago I inherited a house with so much clutter it took me years to eventually restore order. Anyhow, at some point I noticed these big black flies in the house. First there was just one, then a few more, and I knew it was bad news, because they were the flies that eat dead animals. So I had to track down the source, which eventually turned out to be a dead rat, By the time I found it the flies juvenile forms (maggots) had pretty much eaten every last edible part of it, so it didn't stink.
Rather than be upset, I realized what a perfect system. The dead stink, the flies come, the flies eat the rotting dead, they fly away. No more stink, and the new flies are off cleaning up the rest of the Universe.
