Henbit, a winter annual. Pulls out pretty easily. One of the most common
weeds in my garden in the spring. (Nice addition to the compost pile.)
Has bright, pretty flowers much loved by bees. One plant can generate
an enormous amount of seeds, though, which remain viable for a long, long
The vine is Vinca minor. It's a fairly popular flowering groundcover for
semi-shady areas. You might consider trying to keep some of it, because
properly cared for it can look fairly nice, and does provide flowers. It is
a bit of a thug, though, running rampant if not managed.
Pull up whatever you can and spot-treat with the herbicide glyphosate (if
you are OK with that). Use appropriate caution, and avoid getting this
herbicie on anything other than your target plant.

Periwinkle, And It's A BITCH To Get Rid Of!
Spray it with Round-Up.
Just when you think you've got it all, you'll see it pop up somewhere!
Keep at it. Do Not expect it all to be gone in ONE season.
It's a creeper and will continue to spread if you let up.

I agree that Roundup or glyphosate is the way to go. I would NOT
pull them out. You have a stone bed there and anytime you pull
anything out, it brings up soil with it that then is in the stones and
promotes more weeds.
