Hot Hot Heat: Care of Cactus

Our proud American flag is still waving and glowing after her birthday celebration on Monday night. And we love her for it, but unfortunately the Fourth of July for the Phoenicians is indicator that we still have a long way to go and its hot, hot, hot. But you know who loves it?
