    • 2015 April 3, Alan Titchmarsh, “Why you should get outdoors this Easter: A garden should be a joy so embrace guilty pleasures from hot tubs to fire pits this spring [print version: Guilty pleasures of outdoor living, 4 April 2015, p. G3]”, in The Daily Telegraph (Gardening)[1]:
      Time was when every smart urban patio was equipped with one of those gas-burning heaters of the type found outside London cafés. In this age of sensitivity to global warming we've come to be wary of them [] , but somehow those strange little chimineas seem to have warmed the hearts of the nation. I've always found them a bit odd looking – like something from The Hobbit – and you do need to position them where they can do their job without endangering life, limb and property.
