Couple flower questions

Do the leaves(foliage) of Daffodils and Tulips collect and store for next year's blooms...? Or could I cut them off after blooming...?
Also, would like to transplant a Peonies bush. I figure to wait until fall. Should I anticipate problems...will that schedule be successful...?
Thanx....Charlie

I let daffies, tulips and iris grow until their leaves turn brown. When the leaves are half or more brown I then cut them off a few inches above the ground for a neater appearance.

Peonies, at least the one's I've transplanted have survived well. I even did some a week ago and they seem to be doing OK.
