Is it okay to put a raised retaining wall flower bed against my foundation?

My idea is to build a 3 tier flower bed using retaining wall blocks in front of my concrete block foundation.

The first level of block will be about 8ft from the foundation and be about 5 in high. The second level will be about 6 ft from the foundation and consist of a 9 inch high retaining wall and the last level will be about 4 feet from the foundation and consist of a 12 inch high retaining wall.

Will the “step up” design allow for enough drainage away from the foundation or will the layers of retaining wall keep water in?

EDIT:

It’s basically going to look like this but made out of retaining wall block.
