Just enjoy your tulps. When the flowers begin to lose their petals, cut down the flowering stalk, but leave the foliage intact. The foliage needs to grow then turn brown and dry up before you remove it. That is how the bulb rebuilds itself to bloom again next year. Once the leaves turn brown cut them off. You can leave the bulbs in the ground and they will sprout and bloom for you again next year.
