    I don't think I know the song, but I like this painting very much
    the water reflections and the lilac shadow are superb, well done!

    Thank you Muir

    MSIE the song is very old 1909, I'm in my 70s but as a child I can remember hearing it being sung by the old timers.
    It's an old pub song:

    " There's an old mill by the stream,
    Nellie Dean!
    Where we used to sit and dream,
    Nellie Dean!
    And the waters as they flow
    Seem to murmur soft and low.
    You're my heart's desire.
    I love you,
    Nellie Dean! Sweet Nellie Dean! "

    Alas the song was before my time and I sadly don't know it but the painting is very beautiful indeed

    a beautiful painting, the Mill and the water are excellent. It has a nice depth to the landscape with the distant hills all well done... a sweet song too

    Very nicely done! I recall a song with that title but it may not be the same one. My mother used to play it on the piano from an old songbook: "Down by the old mill stream, where I first met you" and etc.
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.
