Fun Fact – Blue Bells for glue!?

 

Blue Bells were once used by fetchers during the bronze age to make glue for their arrows.  The bulbs were  most likely chewed, and the sticky pulp used to hold the feathers.

It is important to note the bulbs are poisonous, so don’t try this at home.  In some areas, wild blue bells are also protected.
