 Ha! Something that still, to this day, crosses all age boundaries :)

 I've been waiting for this for my entire adult life, and I'm very
 excited.  Just under three weeks...

Then come out to Hawaii, visit the Hawaii State Railway Museum, take a ride!

 Why is it ailing? Roses are normally pretty tough. Do you know any 
 horticulture
 bods that might have a look at it? It would be a great shame to lose it.

 It's a combination of surrounding growth and two extremely brutal
 winters in a row.  Back when I planned all this, it was safe to bet on
 the high side of average winter temperatures, and that row of shrubs
 providing my privacy was only about 5' tall.  Now the shrubs are 10'
 tall, and it's hard to maintain a balance between privacy and light
 penetration.  The rose barely gets enough light, and when the brutal low
 temperatures hit, it didn't fare well.

Bummer. Yours has lived a long time. Every rose we've tried here as died 
in a year or less.

I have pictures of roses, but none with a locomotive.

 I wasn't going to go there, but yeah, if I could somehow combine Harry
 Potter with 50 Shades of Grey and then have everybody get killed off
 every few chapters (combine with Marquis de Sade?) I could sell eleventy
 billion copies for sure.

Killing characters off worked for Shakespeare.

 In reality, I'm never going to write a novel, because I can't turn out a
 story that goes for more than about 15 pages.  Writing is harder than it
 looks, and it eats vast amounts of time.

I should go write a novel where I develop characters for 1500 pages 
before killing them in a most brutal and shocking fashion.

 I wouldn't put it past me to figure out a way to get a rose into the

 Sadly, the iconic Rosegarden rose is nearly dead, so I doubt I will be 
 lucky enough to get another good photo of that one.

   To whom, exactly?

Your book sounds ideal for today's self-publishing and print-on-demand 
platforms.

 I should go write a novel where I develop characters for 1500 pages 
 before killing them in a most brutal and shocking fashion.

Add some pron AKA erotica and it would be a massive bestseller. Then you

   Close synaptic.  From a terminal, do this:
