Your tulips are developing seed pods. The seeds will ripen and when they do the seed pod will turn a tannish brown and begin to crack open. When it does, collect the seeds and plant them in your garden. The seeds won't begin to germinate until next spring - they need 3 months of cold temperatures in order to break dormancy. So, collect and plant them in your garden as they mature and look for them to sprout next spring.
