first adding strings in python task

Can anyone tell me what's wrong with my code?

name = "Bridie" treehouse = "Tree" + "house" email_greeting = "{} loves {}".format(name, treehouse) print (email_greeting)

name.py
name = "Bridie"
treehouse = "Tree" + "house"
email_greeting = "{} loves {}".format(name, treehouse)
print (email_greeting)

I would look at two things:

First, you do not need to print the email_greeting variable.

Second, they want you to format email_greeting in a particular order - (treehouse, name).

Thanks, I realised eventually!! Didn't think the interpreter checker would be that fussy!
