When steeping herbs in vinegar in the morning, it can be used that evening since it will begin flavoring the vinegar immediately. The longer it stands the more flavor it will have. The flowers and herbs will deteriorate and the flavor will not be as vibrant. "The annual bed of pot marigolds is filled with plants. These are the true pot marigolds, Shakespeare’s “flowers of Middle Summer”, and by midsummer this spot will appear to be covered with a cloth of gold. I expect them to self-sow, returning every year to gladden our eyes.” ---Annie Burnham Carter from In An Herb Garden
