Dear Paul,

Thank you for your useful suggestions... I've put up some evergreen boughs to temorarily create some shade. I will test the soil for acidity... generally, it is acid leaning, but I don't know exactly.

Yes, I believe they are difficult to grow, but I'll have to tell you my one triumph. As the construction crew worked, one slipper came up just inches from the door to the port-o-potty they used. This was in an area to be paved for the driveway, so I figured there was nothing to lose! I moved it, and it has continued to do well in its new site!

Again, thanks and best regards
