No, that is the inside of the flower. They are done and currently building up nutrients for next year's flowers. (Pity about the wind, this happens to mine occasionally too.)

|Yes, they are finished flowering - blooms usually only last about a week. What you are seeing is the base of the flower containing the ovaries, which (if pollinated) will swell up and form a seed pod. I recommend cutting these off if you do not wish to collect any seeds (note that any plants that grow from the seeds will be different to the parent).
Leave as much of the leafy stem on as possible until it dies back in order to build up the bulbs for next year's flowering.
