Lily buds - what’s happening? 😭

I have been patiently waiting for my tree lilies to start flowering and even about a week ago the buds looked good, nice, plump and getting bigger. 
Today I noticed that most of the flower buds started to shrivel, even the nice big ones that were about to open. I’m so disappointed  😩 What is going on?
they flowered profusely last season, the other lilies I have in the garden look ok so far. 
The leafs look all nice and healthy and glossy, just the buds are falling off. 
I made sure they are watered every day, the drainage in the pot is working. I fed them a little from time to time. But here we are 😩

    They are looking quite wet, heavy rain can cause damage and lead them to drop off, maybe that's the reason.

    The other lilies pretty much only 10m away are all fine. But they are growing in the ground, not in the pot 🙁 I wonder if it is because of the pot? But they did perfectly last year in the same pot and there is only three of them in one big pot...
