I love gardening. I have a big front flower garden in the summertime but also a side garden with tomatoes, peppers, beans, kale, and herbs. It's wonderful being able to grow and eat some of your own produce.

Not sure if you are talking about the same thing, but like if I'm watching a teacher talking and she's wearing a piece of jewelry, like a brooch, I'll mentally take it apart like it's spred out in front of her.

I think what you are referring to is called visual - spatial thinking (also called "thinking in pictures"). I'm a visual - spatial thinker. Not all autistic people are but some are.
