Drought Scheme for Bulbs?

Today, while walking around in the garden and thinking about the second part of the reduce your gardening costs article, I noticed something very strange. I had some bulbs(Anyone can ID them for me?) in a dry place and they were flowering. They hadn't been watered since at least six months. The bulbs had only flowers but no leaves. The weather is quite hot now.

Is it some kind of drought emergency scheme that the bulbs have? In case of severe lack of water, do they just make seeds and spread themselves?
