[NAFEX] Rasberries

I have a strange situation.  I planted a red rasberry last year and it 
seems fine.  This year it put on flowers and started to 'berry-up' but 
then one day I went out to check on it, and noticed that the entire 
flower stem were dead, dead, dead.  The plant is perfectly fine and is 
putting on next years shoots, but everything on the flower/berry ends died.

I thought this was an isolated instance.  However I was out gathering 
wild blackberries and notice I have one or two patches out there in the 
field with the same exact symptoms.  Anybody have any clues about this?  
I was thinking maybe rain/water stress?  Whatever it is it affects Rubus 
for sure.
