Transplanting spring bulbs

I had to dig up several spring bulbs that have already started to bloom (iris', lillies of the valley, daffodils, tulips, etc). I do not want to replant them now because I will have to dig them up again in about a month. I am wondering if I should put them in pots until this fall? or should I cut them back and dry them out until this fall? Thanks!

It would be best to keep these plants actively growing until the foliage dies down naturally. So, potting them up would be the best solution.
