position of 2 adjectives describing same noun

Sentence: I have three pretty (noun): Do I write both French adjectives together, before the noun, please? One is a number (trois) and the other is about beauty (jolis/jolies)= BANGS rule, which ordinarily means that each of these adjectives goes before the noun when on their own; but do they still go before the noun when there are two adjectives, please? J'ai trois jolis fleurs: correct? incorrect? Cheryl

Bonjour Cheryl ! Yes they will still come before the noun: number first (as it replaces "des"/"les") and then "jolies" (agrees with "fleurs"!): "J'ai trois jolies fleurs." Bonne journée !
