Creeping Thorny Weed

This weed comes back every year. It is invasive and gets in to my flower beds. Can someone help me identify it and suggest how to kill it?

Looks like blackberry. What's going on on the other side of the fence?

It's actually not a fence. It is a flower bed. These weeds grow everywhere. This morning, I noticed that there was one wrapped around my tree in the front yard. The tree is in the middle of my yard surrounded by grass. It is such a weird weed and a real pain.
