I forgot to answer your Chilopsis quesion. We tried it a couple of times and it didn't make it. A bunch of other Southwestern plants have at least for a few years. But that is pretty obvious from the photos.
On Saturday there were more Cabbage White Butterflies and angle-winges, presumably Commas were dashing around in the heat. I couldn't get a good enough look at the latter to be sure of the punctuation, they might have been Questionmarks.
