{Disarmed} What's happening to my Superstition??

I was SO looking forward to seeing this one bloom!!!  It was an order planted early last fall and produced  3 HUGE buds, each almost coming to the opening stage and the next day ... all 'mushy'.    I dismissed the first 2 because we had had a lot of rain in a 2 week period but we've had beautiful sunny warm weather in the past week and the last bud, I was sure!!, was going to open on Wednesday or yesterday.  When I got back from work last nite, it had turned to mush during the day too! 
What's up with that??? Did all that rain maybe get trapped inside the bud all this time and rotted it our just as it was going to open or something???  It should be noted that it is the only one doing that  in a bed of 266 plants !
