Q.

How come my rose bushes did not bear any flowers?

The rose plant got real leggy so I pruned them in early Sept. They had produced leaves but no flowers. I transplanted them last fall.

It looks like perhaps the rosebushes were grafted roses and the top desired part died and the hardy root stock took over. Here are some links to articles on this subject for you:
