Marta & Hank Land- OwnersMarta & Hank Land bought House of Flowers the week before Mother's Day in May 1998. (Talk about a baptism by fire!) Hank is a Retired Lt. Col. U.S. Army as well as retired Shawnee, Oklahoma Chief of Police. He is the shop "cook," making sure everyone is happy and fed during those extra long holiday hours. He also helps to keep the peace between all those "creative, sensitive" females! Marta is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma with a degree in design. Her philosophy in life is "Make sure that you are doing what you love! Life is too short to be unhappy. I wake up every day loving life and what I am doing. People are my top priority. As long as I am able to make others happy it's easy to stay happy myself." The true loves of her life are her six beautiful grandsons and one perfect granddaughter. When you see her, ask to see the pictures and you will be a friend for life! Marta is a former President of Oklahoma State Florists Association. She is also extremely active in the local Shawnee community, serving on several boards and committees.
