Filament Kelp makes a suggestion
There were not many trees growing on Filament Kelp's street. She longed for the shade of maples and oaks and for the gentle rustling of alders, and one night she planted saplings in all the potholes, and told them the secret to eternal life. The trees grew big in a matter of days, and Filament found herself living in a forest with a tree looking straight in her window. Filament happened to be pottering around naked in her house so she kindly suggested to the tree to look the other way. The tree - a naturally modest pine - complied, from then on averting its gaze every time Filament was not fully dressed.
