I don't know how long those ponds persist, but if it's more than a week you might want to do something to keep mosquitos from breeding in them.

If there's a way downhill away from that wall, you might want to run some drainage tile from the downspouts to direct roof runoff away from the foundation.
Indeed, there were some scraggly rosebushes there beforehand! It just rained 2 days ago, the water usually doesn't stick around long enough for mosquitoes. It does take a few days though. The land here is pretty flat, so nowhere to route any drainage...
