Sad Juniper Bonsai

I could use some help with my juniper bonsai.

I live in zone 6b and it's been sitting outside all summer on a shaded part of my patio looking healthy and green, with minimal care. We have had a pretty rainy summer, so I have only needed to water it maybe twice a month, and when I went on vacation for 10 days I didn't think it would be a problem leaving it.

However, when I came home it looked like it may have dried out a little too much and the dark green foliage looked closer to tan, and the moss at the base had also turned brown. I took it to my office so I could keep a closer eye on it, and gave it a little liquid fertilizer.

Any suggestion on how to save it would be very helpful!
