Well this was a week ago (internet's been down), so actually more plump foliage now with temps near 80ºF.
Here are some of my junis waking up a bit more robustly than the initial March wake up call.
After some work last year, most are needing thinned and wired.

Cascade had recovered enough from its 2018 repot to thin and wire some this year

I think the last one is not a juniper, but waking up it is. It may get potted up in July ;)

Nice lot of healthy juniper you got there. Yes wire. Most are ready for it.

Thanks Thomas. I know right...I always make excuses or have reasons not to work on several.

I got this one potted up 2nd potting for this one, removing 75% of the previous, 1st potting soil mix.

This one for instance ^ was stymied from its last potting 2 yrs ago. Was afraid it might not make it at one point
so I have done nothing to it in 2 yrs but water and feed. Has great movement and eager to re-expose the trunk.

This Sargent juniper exploded with growth after heavy cut back 2019. Cut that growth back last year and it sulked for the rest of the year
not responding the same way, but is plumping up nicely now with juicy growth tips.

Gold tip

Gold Lace. Vigorous, this one sports the most brown foliage of all of my junipers...begging for attention. It too was hard pruned
along with the Sargent above same time with same explosive results after a hard July cut back. Since it was potted, a 2nd hard prune did not ensue
and the result speaks for itself as compared to the Sargent, which you can see through its bag of bones rather easily.

Another 3 gallon Gold Tip

Another procumbens - The sisters. One of which is ugly. This was a 1 gallon nursery stock

That first pic of the cascade is SOOOOO nice. Looking forward to seeing it wired out.

Then there's Ole No. 2 that just keeps plugging along in its mica pot

This procumbens I really like. It was a starter plant from a lot of 6 I got on eBay in 2" pots.
The pot!! well here's why I haven't thinned it...I repotted it last year in April 2020. Was doing good.
Then 5/29/2020 the pot and tree took a South Paw gust of wind and busted on the deck while I was at work.
I had no other pot to put it in. NOW, this pot which I had to drill the drainage holes into, has busted over Winter
this year and I'm going to press my luck that it does not crumble and actually work on the foliage this year.
Sad to say, but it needs repotting again given the condition of the temporary home it's in.
The bottom 2 branches are probably sacrifice branches
