'Army Cuts' exhibit at Chelsea Flower Show

A controversial display depicting the body of a soldier splattered in blood will feature at this year's Chelsea Flower Show. The floral sculpture, titled More Questions than Answers, is the work of artist Tony Smith and is designed to symbolise the shortage of protective equipment available to British troops serving in Afghanistan and Iraq.

That's what you might call "Saying it with flowers".
