Bulbs are unique types of plants. Every year they bloom. And every year they die. They have to die. As the bulb's leaves dry up and die, the plant's energy is pulled back into the bulb. It uses that energy to bloom next year. If you cut off the leaves as soon as they start to turn brown, the bulb won't have enough energy stored to bloom the next year. It needs to die, just like it needs to get sunlight and water. It's a part of the cycle. The browning leaves are not ugly, They are a part of the necessary energy cycle.

You can learn a lot from plants.
