Why isn't the label showing? (<label>Shirt Size:</label>)

As far as I can tell I'm entering the code correctly, yet when I go to the preview I cannot see the label. What's missing?

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>HTML Forms</title>
    <form action="index.html" method="post">
      <h1>Shirt Order Form</h1>
      <label for="color">Shirt Color:</label>
      <select id="color" name="shirt_color">

       <label>Shirt Size:</label>
        <input type="radio" id="small" value="small" name="shirt_size">
        <input type="radio" id="medium" value="medium" name="shirt_size">
        <input type="radio" id="large" value="large" name="shirt_size">

        <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>

      <button type="submit">Place Order</button>

The label for shirt size and the input elements immediately after it are currently nested inside a select element. Simply move the label and related elements to after the closing select element and it should look a lot more like you want it. ^_^

Hey, thanks! I didn't notice because I had been doing the previous tasks for the challenge inside the section and didn't get a bad mark because of it. I didn't read the instructions well.
