Mystery Plant

This plant has trailing green leaves, and these wanderfully scented yellow flowers. They are almost like water lilys with a cup like flower and the scent is like lemon grass. It is reminiscent of a Thai curry or Chicken soup.
What plant is it? It is growing in the raised border, like a ground cover plant but it is not successfull..
I am working nights again this week, so only time to walk around the garden before bed, and after I get up.
Can you identify this scented yellow flower for me?

I think your plant may be "creeping jenny"

Although I have to confess that I have never noticed a scent on creeping jenny.

Hi David, it's Creeping Jenny (Lysimachia). We have it in our garden too. The flowers are lovely and bright and cheerful. I've never noticed that it had a scent though... I must have a proper sniff of it tomorrow! :)
