Our new logo

YG logo Laurelwood leaf 300px sqSince Yogananda Gardens is located in the lovely Laurelwood valley west of Portland Oregon, it seemed appropriate to incorporate a Laurelwood leaf in our logo. After some sorry attempts to draw such a leaf I simply went out doors and plucked a fresh leaf from our nearby Laurelwood tree, photographed it and processed the image to simplify it a bit. The flourish on the capital Y in the font we chose (SandyTxtHmkBold) reminded us of the Ananda “Joy is Within You” symbol and at the same time suggests a sprouting seed. We hope you like it as much as we do.
