The Blooms of Regret

Huffington Post writer Bronnie Ware, a hospice worker, recently shared the Top Five Regrets of the Dying. It was a bit obvious in terms of its content, but worth reading nonetheless.

However, I can't figure out why the editors chose this photo to promote the story:
Huffington Post headline and photo of blackeyed susans

What do blackeyed Susans have to do with the subject? Is one of the top five regrets "I didn't plant enough native wild flowers"?

I suppose it's a visual metaphor for stopping to smell the flowers... but this kind of flower has no scent.

And I wonder if HuffPo paid Outlaw Menace Photography for use of the image?
