When do autumn raspberries flower?

I have a patch of what I think are autumn rasps. Autumn Bliss. I cut all the canes back to the ground in late Feb.
The canes are about 3ft high atm with no sign of flowers yet, so I was wondering if they're actually summer rasps.
Thanks

    My polka haven't got flowers yet. The summer fruiters already have green raspberries on.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    There's no sign of flowers on my autumn "all gold" raspberries Pete. They look to be at the same stage as yours. 

    Looking back in my photos I found one of them with ripe fruits in Aug 2016, the first year I grew them.

    Thanks fb and Kitty
    I've got a small patch of summer rasps which have green fruits atm which I'm keeping an eye on - as are the pigeons!
    So I'm hoping that these are autumn fruiters
    This will be my first year with soft fruits.
    Blueberries are looking good and a few blackcurrants are starting to turn red now too - mmmm summer pudding!
