Yes,  Lysimachia Nummularia aka Creeping Jenny. Bit of a thug too!
Gardening is the great leveller.

Looks like it might be the "Mind your own business" plant.  If it is, it gets EVERYWHERE if it escapes.  I have some in the lawn and in crevices on the patio and in the garden wall. You will never be alone again!  :blob7:

Had a closer look, the leaves look more pointy than MYOB

I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
