My Rose Bush is Not Blooming

My rose bush (yellow) is quite large, yet it only has one bud! The canes are continuing to grow. I water and feed the beautiful tall bush. My question: If I trim the tall canes from the top, will the rose bush begin to bud?

I have rose bushes with long canes; and they don't bloom until a little later in the season. That said, I never hesitate to prune them back. I would not give up on the idea of flowers until you give it some more time this season. Some bushes bloom all summer, some only have a (relatively) short period of bloom.
