It's builds, but says, "bummer I don't have any options in my select"

I did a preview and it builds and displays correctly with label in the select drop down.

Can you post your code?

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <title>HTML Forms</title> </head> <body>

<form action="index.html" method="post">
  <h1>Shirt Order Form</h1>
  <select id="color" name="shirt_color">
    <optgroup label="Shirt Color">
    <option value="red">Red</option>
    <option value="yellow">Yellow</option>
    <option value="purple">Purple</option>
    <option value="blue">Blue</option>
    <option value="green">Green</option>
    <option value="orange">Orange</option>
    </optgroup>
  </select>
</form>

</body> </html>

The optgroup tags are what is failing the challenge. Task 3 want you to use the label tag with the select tag. This will display outside the options.
